“In the months leading up to a marathon, we often see people coming in with overuse injuries because they are ramping up their mileage too quickly,” says David R. McAllister, MD, chief of the Sports Medicine Service in the UCLA Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Overuse injuries can include patellofemoral pain (runner’s knee), medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints), and bone-stress reactions or stress fractures.

What injuries can I get if I overtrain for a marathon?

Will my hip popping affect my joint and muscles when I'm older?
Aaron Nelson , NASM Elite Trainer, Sports Medicine, answeredIf you have chronic popping in the hip joint, you should have it examined by a orthopedist. The presence of pain is also a major indicator to have it examined. If the issue is not addressed, it is possible for athritis to develop as you get older. If the popping is being caused by a tendon snapping across a bone, you could develop issues in which the tendon and muscles weaken and cause chronic pain and inflammation.
Why does it tingle when I hit my funny bone or the inside of my elbow?
When nerves are damaged or irritated, they cause a tingling sensation along the distribution of the nerve, or the path that the nerve follows. Since the funny bone (or ulnar nerve), is very superficial at the elbow, it's very common to irritate it.
